Compressed Natural Gas – In the News

HandyTube’s interview with 21st Century Business was featured on FOX Business, CNBC and Bloomsburg TV in March of last year, showcasing its new CNG Plus™ Tubing products. And it is still “breaking news” to most of the CNG market. HandyTube™ Corporation has partnered with SSP, an American-made fittings manufacturer, to develop a unique solution exclusively for CNG stations. Unlike other tubing, truly seamless CNG Plus™ Tubing is designed to withstand extreme pressures associated with transporting compressed natural gas over long distances. In addition, it’s manufactured with Restricted Tolerance Controls to optimize the tubing for use with compression tube fittings. CNG Plus™ Tubing, made from stainless steel, is seamless and shipped in continuous long-length coils. This eliminates the need for welding pipe together and saves on labor cost. The unique partnership has allowed additional services such as initial inspection and plan review, bill-of-materials development and delivery of all job materials on site. The end goal:  A faster and safer way to build CNG fueling stations. In the video segment HandyTube President John Coates talks about his company’s dedication to providing exceptional customer solutions instead of just tubing. With constant innovation and an aggressive approach to meeting customer needs, Coates is optimistic about the future role his company will play in the construction of CNG infrastructure. According to Coates, HandyTube engineers are constantly working to come up with new and better methods to serve the needs of their customers. Click to learn more about CNG Plus™ Tubing!

Major Operators Are Converting Forklift Fleets to Fuel Cell Technology

Fuel cell technology is much more than a passing fad for commercial operations. It’s a technology that has proven that material-handling vehicles can be greener, more productive and more cost-efficient. In fact, over the next few years, the demand for fuel cell technology is expected to grow by double digits, with the greatest demand being driven by industries in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific. Proton exchange membrane type fuel cells made up about 46.3 percent of the demand for fuel cells in 2011. PEMFCs operate at a low temperature (80 to 200 degrees Fahrenheit) relative to other fuel cell types and are capable of handling sudden shifts in power output, making them ideal for powering the acceleration in cars and specialty vehicles, like forklifts, according to the Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Energy Association (Washington, D.C., fchea.org).
